People living in Dunn County now have easier access to dialysis services. Mayo Clinic Health System opened a new dialysis center in Menomonie. The facility will have 24 dialysis stations, which will allow the center to serve 96 patients. Mayo Clinic Health System also says the facility uses a special, energy efficient, geothermal heating and cooling system to warm and cool the facility throughout the year. Nursing director with Mayo Clinic Health System Dialysis Services Dawn Tweed told us Tuesday "It's a much smaller unit and there has been a waiting list for a number of years with more patients than we're able to accommodate at that site, so thus came the need to build a larger unit."
